Of course it’s easy to dress when it’s a nice day outside, but what are cowboys supposed to wear when its rainy, windy, cold, or wet out? Lucky for all the cowboys who invest in a good pair or cowboy boots, Sheplers has some good news for you! There are steps you can take (no pun intended) to ensure that your favorite pair of boots can withstand even the rainiest thunderstorm.

Waterproofing Cowboy Boots

If you happen to spend a lot of time where you’re stepping around in puddles, chances are you’re more concerned about the functionality of your cowboy boots, rather than the classy style of them. Now, when it comes to whether or not you should be wearing cowboy boots in the rain, just know that leather is naturally water repellent. With that being said, 100% leather boots will repel water. Although you can wear your leather boots in the rain, you must treat them before-hand, and afterwards in order to avoid any true damage. You can treat your cowboy boots with:

Before weather and waterproofing your boots, make sure you’ve given them a good shampoo and condition. Once your boots are clean and dry, you can begin treating them for the harsh weather conditions you may endure.

Sheplers suggests you avoid getting your exotic skin boots wet like snakeskin or lizard because the scales on snakeskin boots will curl when they’re wet, and they won’t return back to normal once they’re dry. Don’t attempt to weatherproof snakeskin or alligator boots either, because the waxy polish can build up within the scales and dull the finish or ruin the skin.

How to Dry Cowboy Boots

In the event that your boots are more wet than you wish, do not use a hair dryer to dry them. The heat can cause the leather or skins to shrink, which will remain permanent. If you’re trying to quickly dry out after wearing cowboy boots in the rain, you can put newspaper on the insides to absorb any moisture that may have gotten inside, and allow air to circulate around them. The professionals at Sheplers men’s western wear suggest keeping your boots in a well-ventilated area, and avoid storing them in dark, damp places.
